Warning: Picture-heavy post ahead.
Today was weird. The forecast said it was going to be hot, but that was difficult to believe as the day started out cold and extremely foggy. As I was going upstairs to take a shower I was surprised to see a large bird in the tree. It was a duck!
I took a hundred photos of it, wishing I could go outside to get a better view, then I remembered that our windows actually open. That is right handy. In fact, there were two ducks!
That was a nice way to start the day. I highly recommend watching ducks for a little bit in the morning.
Eventually it warmed up and Lloyd headed outside to mow up the leaves. I tagged along to document the process, and perhaps even help. Brad, this is for you – the Yard in April! (It’s the first video I’ve ever taken with my new camera and for some reason I sound like a robot. I’m going to guess that it’s because it has a stereo microphone. Oh, and it was really, really windy.)
So, after filming the crummy yard, we worked to make it better. It was hot work, since it got up in the mid-80’s! That was the crazy part. It reaffirmed my dislike of hot weather.
Leaves were raked out and mulched, some dead foliage was cut back, and I found a hollow tomato from ConBloGar!
Oh, and Lloyd found 20 bucks in the yard! Beth and Harold, are you missing some money?
